Zrin (Serbian Cyrillic: Зрин)[1] is a village in Croatia, Sisak-Moslavina county.

In the past it was the seat of the Croatian noble family Šubić. Later the family called themselves Zrinski, after Zrin. It was a stronghold of Croatian defence in the Ottoman wars. There are still ruins of Zrin Castle in the village. In World War II the village was burned to the ground. Zrin was a village with a Catholic population and the Partisans attacked it in 1943, killing 270 people and burning down the old Catholic church. After World War II the communist government relocated the remaining Catholic population to empty houses in Slavonia after it had exiled the German population.

In the Croatian War of Independence the place was occupied by Serb forces and was part of the Republic of Serbian Krajina. In Operation Storm (1995) Zrin was reoccupied by Croatia and now is inhabited by 12 residents.

Use of this name

The Zrin is a self-unloading containership cargo vessel about 200 meters in length, built in and managed from Croatia, registered in Malta.[2]
